February 2020 - Botswana reopens elephant hunting.
Botswana President Masisi said, "It's a great day for Botswana, conservation and sustainable use of our natural resources." The Botswana government auctioned a total of 60 elephant quotas/permits in six concessions. Concessions with quotas are CT4, CT7, NG8, NG9, NG11 and NG35. With these exportable elephant trophy permits, it will bring more jobs and money into the local communities, a needed source of protein, and reduce elephant poaching and human/elephant conflicts in the areas.
Tanzania work permit restrictions will only allow professional hunters with 10 years work experience in the field or sector and 5 years in the same position to be issued with a work permit.
